Tuna Noodle Casserole for Two Recipe

My mom made this tuna casserole through the years...a delicious family dish, but good for any occasion. I often serve it for a luncheon along with garlic bread and a salad. It's quick and easy to prepare, freezes well and makes a complete meal.

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 2 cups cooked wide egg noodles
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tuna, drained and flaked

"Easy enough to make. I did add a little garlic powder and used seasoned salt instead of table salt because it looked like it could be bland with just salt and pepper. I also mixed the corn flake crumbs with a tbsp of melted butter."
